They constitute an important part of feng shui, lucky bamboo plants are said to bring good luck and fortune, especially if the plants were given as gifts.
Why is Lucky bamboo considered as Lucky?
A little indoor bamboo plant is considered lucky in feng shui when it combines/represents all five feng shui elements, which are:
- Wood - the Bamboo itself
- Earth - the Rocks the Bamboo grows in
- Water - the Water the Bamboo grows with
- Fire - most pots usually have a red ribbon tied to them
- Metal - the glass pots belong to the feng shui Metal element. If the Feng Shui Lucky Bamboo is planted in a pot other than glass, such as clay or ceramics, it will usually have either a metal coin, or a metal figurine with it.
